Where Hanging Weeping Willows Grow

Clear stream where weeping willow's grow. 
Beyond small valleys and low hills.
She puts on a cool - summer's show 
Before winter's first cold chills.

Beneath beaming moon, on she flows 
It's falling rays dancing in tune.
It's banks weeping willows hang low
Majestic site in month of June.

Soft summer breeze through the trees blows
Whispering calls from long ago. 
Branches low moving to and fro
Keeping green willows swaying slow.

Of this stream that the willows flank. 
I see spread out here before me.
Soft midnight dance upon the banks
Held captive by this beauty free.

I stand there silent in a trance.

Weeping Willow trees are beautiful. I like the way they look. I like the way they sway in the breeze. Have a nice evening to you and Edward.

Thank you Dale for reading, commenting and pointing out that mistake. That was a typo, that has now been corrected. Sadly, I far too often make such typo's. I am bad at editing.

This really is beautifully written. I have a question: in the 1st line of your 3rd stanza do you mean to have the word, "blows", written twice? It reads awkwardly. Other than that, well done indeed.

My friend, thank you for reading and your generous and kind reply to this collaboration written on Nature and its magnificent scenery. As a child, we had weeping willows along the banks of a clear flowing stream near our home. I now have beautifully hanging, weeping willows in my front yard.

Thank you Robert for reading and replying with such kindness. Perhaps you may soon find more time to visit the Soup--and its many wonderful poets. For me, this is, BY FAR , the absolute best poetry site in the internet. With so many truly talented poets...

I have just read and commented on this fine poem at Edward's poetry page, so I'll exend the same courtesy to you Robert... A beautiful, poetic description of a lovely bucolic scene here! I don't visit the Soup as often as I used to, but I'm glad I read this today! Enjoyed.
